're doing works for them and for the country. joining me now is jamal simmons and michelle cottle for the daily beast. she wrote an article, joe biden the listener. thank you both for joining me tonight. >> good to be here. >> thanks, rev. >> michelle, let me go to you first. what about this relationship works so well? >> very early on it was established that makes a great compliment for obama. but also persona. he's kind of warmer and more emotional than the president who's seen as cool and cerebral. highway has a lot of inside the beltway experience especially when it comes to dealing with capitol hill which president obama does not like to go up there a lot. and he plays a mean kind of inside game with careful negotiations whether it's the fiscal cliff or dealing with iraq or any number of diplomatic issues like dealing with the incoming chinese president. he's called on to handle these assignments. and it's worked out pretty well for the obama administration in a lot of different areas. >> now, jamal, a good manager knows how to deal with his team. and you know the president's

reporter seth and carmen wong ulrich, and jamal simmons and newly elected congresswom congresswoman symanon. >> well, republicans have said the same thing, and there are a group of people who are congresspeople spending time right now and according to the aides spent time over the holidays thinking about what a bill would look like crafting a bill. we have yet to see what a bill might look like. absolutely, we are looking at a scene right now that makes it look very difficult to get anything, anything progressive certainly passed. now, you know, the reality is that both parties here are starting from in the red on immigration reform. the republican party has consistently blocked everything, and immigration reform, and the dream act and talked about, romney talked about self-deportation during the elections. but you know, the democrats on the same day that this announcement was made about parents and spouses, and i mean, weeks before that announcement was made, numbers came out about the new deportation numbers, and what we are seeing is that historic numbers of deportation in the last year

keep pain away all day. back to the news. jamal simmons, jackie calmes. and chris. chris, let me start with you, with the house republic caps, what about this idea that you can only control 33% of the policy part of this white house. can you accept 40% of what you want, rather than go to zero or 100%? >> well, this whole compromise argument, i think, is misleading because the compromise only matters where you start. are you going to start by growing government? or are you going to start by shrinking government? and the debate is always, well, let's compromise on how much we can grow government. so i think it's where you start more than whether you want to compromise or not. i think the fiscal conservatives some the house that can provide an opportunity for the vision of future. and that's their job. >> all right, jackie, white house chief of staff, an opening now not going to be announced today. two guys with different skillsets if you will. interesting that the president hasn't decided yet. >> no, there seems to be some concern that dennis mcdonough doesn't have a lot of experience. >

committee on gun control, and i'm following on twitter, and there's jamal simmons, and a tweet saying congratulations to my friend, mo calen. and i'm thinking who the hell is mo calen and then i realized he was just appointed the next senator from the state of massachusetts. who is he and what is he all about? nobody knows more about that frank philips from the boston globe. hi, frank. >> good to talk to you, bill. >> bill: so he was former chief of staff for the governor right? >> yes, he just left. the state house knows him very well. >> bill: was it a surprise to you? >> no, the governor made it clear he wanted a woman or person of color. and he wants to continue to break ground. mo has got a lot of respect in the legal committee. lawyers in boston know him, he was with mince levin in boston, and they think very very highly of him. he has a reputation around the power circles in boston but the general public doesn't know him at all. he was very low profile publicly when he was in the state house. >> bill: it's interesting the speculation about whom he might app

is jamal simmons and ari fleischer, the white house press secretary for george w. bush. jamal, should reverend giglio be punished now for what he said nearly 20 years ago? >> his views clearly don't reflect the president's views and i think the controversy that's erupted is going to overshadow any role that he plays in the inauguration. the thing that's interesting here, we're going to have an entire generation of trouble on this question because he's not a aloan. as we come to new reconciliation and understanding of gay rights, we're going to have to find a way to maybe rehabilitate people who have some views earlier or let them have views that are outside the mainstream on one topic and perhaps more aggressive on another. i think there's going to be a real struggle for us over the next few years as we bring all of this together after this really controversial issue. >> ari, where do you stand on this? >> i think gays are fellow citizens and should be treated with respect as such. tony perkins does make a valid point about there are people who disagree with me. should they be banned
